Sarge Charlie – He was an American Soldier when our Nation despised them. He came home from Vietnam to be looked down upon, called names and criticized, when all he did was serve his country. I was fortunate to get to know the Sarge through blogging since 2006 and it was my goal to get to meet him one day. I’m very sad that I won’t have that opportunity to do it in person. I truly respected and honored the man very much. Sarge Charlie brought a fresh outlook on the politics affecting us over the last few years and put a smile on our face. I have seen many bloggers disagree with Sarge over various issues or points he brings up, but regardless, he respected the other persons views and vice versa. Thank you Charlie for your service, your wisdom, and for making a difference in many people’s lives. May God great you as an old friend and a new neighbor. Rest in Peace.
